Yes. Taxation IS Theft: GodArchy Podcast #4

You’ve almost certainly seen the meme: “Taxation is theft.” But is it? Really? I tackle that question in this episode of the GodArchy Podcast.

It’s almost become a cliche’, particularly in libertarian circles. We see the memes all over Facebook. It’s become a go-to retort in comment threads. You can even buy a t-shirt emblazoned with the slogan.

“Taxation is theft!”

But is this anything more than a silly libertarian catchphrase?

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I take up this idea and reveal that it’s not only true, it hints at an even deeper, fundamental reality. This episode is not just about taxation. I explore some more fundamental issues.

Where does the mob get its authority?

Does “collective will really exist?”

And most fundamentally, on what basis does the state really operate?
